£200,000+ works to begin at Longbeck Industrial Estate

More than two hundred thousand pounds of improvement works to one of the borough’s industrial estates will soon be underway, thanks to funding from Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council.

Marske’s Longbeck Industrial Estate will benefit from improved roads and lighting and the establishment of a Business Improvement District for the estate is also under consideration.

Week commencing 8 April will see the beginning of a £64,000 project to improve the street lighting on the estate with LED low energy lamps while the roads within the estate will receive £175,000 of resurfacing, general repairs and pothole filling from the end of April.


Ian Hopley, Senior Project Manager for Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, said:

“The businesses on the estate have been incredibly supportive of our plans to improve the road and lighting works at Longbeck. We’ve worked in partnership with them from the beginning and they know the improvements will benefit all the tenants for years to come.”

Future looks bright

Peter Collinson, owner of Car Care Of Marske, commented: “It’s great there is going to be change on the estate, with the support of the Borough Council and the majority of businesses the improvements can be seen already.

“Once the lighting is installed and roads resurfaced it’s down to the business owners and landlords to come on board and support the long term plans in maintaining the infrastructure and ensuring it doesn’t take a backward step.

“I’m positive this will happen and the future looks bright for Longbeck Industrial Estate once again.”

Business Improvement District

Discussions are currently ongoing about the possibility of creating a Business Improvement District at Longbeck Industrial Estate, which, if agreed by the businesses, would see them contributing to a fund to cover the future maintenance of the newly improved assets, marketing and estate developments.
